My Technomate was not pre-programmed with 25.5E so I entered it into the list manually but when I search for channels I am only picking up a few channels from 23.5E but you can't view them.

What am I doing wrong?

Which satellite are you looking for, you mention 25.5 and 23.5, 23.5 is hard to receive from many UK locations, whereabouts are you, would help if you put it in your profile.

Probably using a dish too small for that sat in the UK. Its firing into the Mediterranean basin, and doesnt cover the UK :D

I'm in the west Midlands (profile updated). I can pick up 23.5E fine but when I move the dish to 25.5E and search for channels it comes with a few names from 23.5E but you can't view them.

Analoguesat, Thanks for explaining. I assumed by the Euro in the name it covered Europe!

Absolutely no hope up there with a 110cm dish I'm afraid.
I'm only able to resolve 3 transponders down here from that bird, and only one of those gives pictures that are watchable.
